During one of our meetings, we kissed, and things went from there."Leslie popped the question during a holiday to Sicily in 2017.

He'd designed it himself and had it made by a man called Vincent Loveland. Now every time we watch Inspector Montalbano, we point to the place where he proposed."... read more
